“Building a Culture of Resistance in Syracuse”
Syracuse Solidarity Network discussion/meeting
Monday, April 14
5pm, Women’s Info Center
601 Allen St, Syracuse, NY 13210

Join the Syracuse Solidarity Network (SSN) for a conversation on building a culture of resistance in Syracuse. Following the militant demonstrations against the fifth anniversary of the war in Syracuse and across Upstate NY, how can we move towards more popular and effective movements for radical change?

Cultures of resistance support and take part in movements through ideas, art music, community and action. They are the grass roots from which opposition to the system grows. Let’s discuss how we can build supportive, creative alternatives together and make the revolutionary movements Syracuse deserves!

We would especially like to invite:
– radical activists/organizers who can tell us what’s going on in their groups
– musicians, artists, zine writers, concert organizers, poets who are interested in joining a loose working group to put on creative radical art, music and cultural events
– and people with shirt, button, or craft skills who want to put a radical message out.

We will also hear updates from local Syracuse groups & how to plug in ;reports back from the International Declaration in Defense of El Barrio, April 6th on NYC City Hall Steps, for info see ;updates on the Firearms Skillshare, for info see ;and updates/plans for the Solidarity Without Borders campaign, for info see

The political prison/prisoner support project of SSN be making plans to mobilize people from Syracuse for the mass demonstration in support of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal in protest of the recent court decision to deny him a new trial and re-sentence him to either death or life in prison, the demo will be in Philadelphia April 26th, for more info see
